The Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections Program Mission

The Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program supports advances in the development and application of Earth system models and analyses across NOAA for the purpose of building resilience to climate impacts, predicting and projecting change from years to decades in the future, and improving our understanding of and ability to simulate the Earth system. MAPP works with partner agencies in the U.S. Global Change Research Program, and focuses on engaging the non-NOAA research community to help advance NOAA’s modeling capabilities.
